The FS1000 is an evolutionary digital system which truly integrates everything for operation in broadcast studios eliminating all the legacy peripherals and video tapes. The FS1000 system posesses all functions and features of the FD1000 system and comprises OnAir software for convenient playout.
FS1000 can be used with an internal or network-attached hard disk drive storage system eliminating the need to store and catalog hundreds of tapes
FS1000 includes A/V switcher, ingestion, multi-layer title and logo insertion, multi-format scheduler, mixer and playout server. The server can either be controlled in the studio or from a remote site by network or GPI. The server can also be integrated with external audio and video switcher and mixer for additional I/O capabilities.
The FS1000 can continuously get live video and audio for storing on hard disk drives. The provided software enables real time selection of desired A/V fragments through an NLE type interface. The playback of selected clips can be scheduled and performed without stopping/pausing of the input process.
Broadcasting over the Internet is becoming more prevalent by small studios. This new breed of broadcasters requires all the functionality of the big broadcasters but in a compact, economical package that also encodes and streams content over IP networks.
Automatic A/V encoding and streaming capabilities can be included in FS1000 system. The Windows Media 9, H.264 (AVC/AAC) format is available now. These capabilities position the FS1000 server as the perfect tool for small studios to launch high quality Internet broadcasting.

The FD300 board is a hardware framework for all the „Forward T” product line. In addition to the video input/output device (two input channels and one output channel), the board provides three audio input/output stereo channels. It is possible to install several boards in the same computer to build multichannel solutions.
Various ways of connecting external devices (signal sources/receivers) to the board are possible: using the cable set (supplied with the delivery set) with connectors at the ends of the cables or via the breakout boxes (optionally).
To use SDI digital video signals in the „Forward T” products, an SDI-in/out option connected to the FD300 board is available.
